I have stayed in this hotel twice. The first time was for almost three weeks. The grounds of the hotel gives you a feeling of being in a park. It was always clean and the staff there has always been nice and have helped me to the best of there abilities. Sometimes it was difficult because my Spanish is not so good and they do not speak much English. There is a restaurant on site along with a lounge. The food is good but is better in town if you want to make the trek. Here is the downfall of the hotel. It is a good distance from the Plaza, I am guessing somewhere around a mile, so any shopping, eating, banking or site seeing you would like to do would require a taxi or a good distance of walking at high altitude. Also, the hotel is gated and not marked real well so to get to it by taxi make sure that the driver knows where it is. We ran into a couple taxi drivers who did not know where it was.

As far as amenities go they have everything you need. A full bath with a shower, cable television, wireless internet and there was a small safe in my room. They also will do same day laundry service if you get it in to the front desk in the morning. There is no temperature control though so the nights did tend to get pretty cold but they do give you some heavy blankets to help keep you warm. The beds are decent and can be a little stiff if you are used to something softer but I never had much of a problem falling to sleep at night.

The price for a single is somewhere around $50/US a night and I think the doubles are $60/US. I would confirm with them before you book.

If you do not mind being a little bit farther away from the sites in town this is a great place to stay. It has most of the comforts you need without the greater expence of being close to the Plaza de Armas.
